With call up of Chris Taylor, M's may find other positions for Brad Miller
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(7:16 pm ET) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that shortstop Brad Miller may move around in the defense and that he is "Not the forgotten man. He's certainly not the culprit in all of this," according to the Seattle Times.

Miller has started 23 of the Mariners' 25 games this year at shortstop but, with the call up of Chris Taylor, he's not in Monday's starting lineup.

Miller is hitting .250 this season with a .301 on-base percentage for the 10-15 Mariners.

Rangers' Josh Hamilton goes 0 for 4 in first extended spring game
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7:04 pm ET) Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton had his first game action of the year in extended spring training on Monday. 

Hamilton went 0 for 4 with a strikeout and three hard-hit grounders to first, according to a report by MLB.com.

Hamilton is returning from shoulder surgery. 

"It's been seven months since I've had some game action, but I felt good, and the body felt good," Hamilton said. "The legs feel good, and for the most part, I swung at strikes. I think I only swung at one pitch out of the zone today. Other than that, I was amped up, and that comes with getting at-bats and getting in game situations."
